Chapter 16

        "When is the family going on that trip yet?' groaned Dusktail. "Kids, get packing! We are leaving for the trip tommorow!" yelled Len. "Can we bring the cats?" asked the kids. "We have to get more cat carriers, but sure!" he replied. Then the kids started packing and the dad left for the store. The mom came over and put collars on each of them. "There you go." she said. The dad came back a hour later with these rope things and big metal traps. Wintertail went outside into the yard. She looked up and saw clouds that looked like two cats figting. It was not like those fluffy clouds you make pictures with. It looked like real cats actually fighting. Moving back and forth jumping and leaping on each other. "That's strange." Wintertail jumped to see Frostglory right next to her. So she was not just imagining it."The first sign." said a voice on the wind."The first sign."
       The next morning the Cloudwalkers shoved them all into these tight cages. Pebblefoot, Dusktail, and Dotfur in one and her and Frostglory in another. Domino had her own cage. They went to a place where these metal falcons carried Cloudwalkers and their pets. First, more Cloudwalkers tape paper things on the metal traps. The families' things were somehow transported to the metal falcon. Then, the Cloudwalkers put them on a machine that moved through another crazy machine. Last the Cloudwalkers boarded the metal falcon. Wintertail's favorite part was when the metal falcon took off, although she kept bumping into Frostglory.The metal falcon always stayed over land (the same land they came from). It also followed the stream. That is good, thought Wintertail. We ought to find the plug much faster by traveling by air. "Go to sleep, Wintertail." said Frostglory" We should be landing soon." Now that she thought about it, she was really tired. Wintertail quickly drifted off to sleep.

Chapter 15

        "Time to eat, kitties!"called Jayne.The cats ran over.Wintertail was ready to bite into a big juicy mouse. Instead when she came to the bowls she saw these pellets. "What are these things."asked Wintertail. "They are called cat food."said a voice. Another cat trotted up. This cat looks fairly plump and friendly thought Wintertail."My name is Domino." Pebblefoot intoduced everyone. "But I heard the people call you different names." said Domino. "Thats our pet names." said Wintertail "What are people?" asked Dusktail. "'Cloudwalkers', to you guys."said Domino. "Try the pellets." said Domino. Wintertail tried it. "Yuck! This like dead rats."she complained.Domino fronwed. "Well to me it taste like the best thing in the world." commented Domino. "Maybe there is a way out." murmmered Pebblefoot. "Try the cat door." said Domino. "Cat door?" asked Pebblefoot. "The way we cats get out to stretch our legs." said Domino cheerfully. "Let's go everybody." meowed Pebblefoot. Everyone followed her.
         When they got outside the yard was surrounded by a fence. "No prey will dare to come through the fence." meowed Wintertail."Beside I only eat fruits and vegies." She saw Domino come out of the 'cat door'. "Sometimes bird come and eat the seeds from the grass." she meowed. But luckly she saw a patrol of WaveClan cats coming back from a fruit hunt. "Hey, over here." she yelled. The cats turned and came bounding toward them. The patrol ws led by Frostglory. "How are you doing." said Frostglory going under the fence. "Fine." said Frostglory. "Oh, by the way have you seen Cheetahswift?" asked Wintertail. "No." she replied. "You mean she's not back at the clan yet?" Before Frostglory could answer they heard loud screaming. "Kitty cat." yelled a voice that sounded like Dian. Frostglory tried to get out but her tail got stuck on a bramble. Dian scrambled up and grabbed Frostglory then hugged her. "I want to name her Frosty." yelled Dian.Dian walked into the house with Frostglory scrambeling to get free.Wintertail running back toward camp but at the rear she spotted Puckleclaw with a smug smile.The rest of the cats including Domino who was jittery over the exciting event. In the house during dinner Wintertail and Frostglory(who had given up with trying to get away) ate fruit. Which Frostglory had snuck in while the others were stuck eating pellets.

Chapter 14

          The next day at dawn the four cats met."Time to go now." hissed Pebblefoot. Wintertail peeked through the bushes and saw the Cloudwalker. Only the two big ones were out, but she could hear the two little ones in the big den.
         The cats headed out in front of the Cloudwalkers. First Dotfur, then Pebblefoot, Dusktail, and last her. "Meow." they all meowed. They had a plan. Dusktail and Pebblefoot would try to befriend the one with long fur. Dotfur and Wintertail would try to befriend the one with short hair.They headed toward their Cloudwalker. "Aww, how cute." said the female Cloudwalker. She knelt down to pick up Pebblefoot and Dusktail. The male Cloudwalker didn't seem that interested. Dotfur frowned, then hopped onto the Cloudwalker's lap while Wintertail followed. The other Cloudwalker stooped down and grabbed them ,too."Let's keep them, Len." said the female Cloudwalker. "Fine." said the other. She brought them into the house. "Tommy, Dian look what we found." said the female Cloudwalker, Jayne.Wintertail could here the pitter patter of the Cloudwalkers feet. The female quickly swung them behind the her back. "Yes, Mommy?" "As a 'good job' present for school, we have a present for you two. Dian, since you got 3 E's you get to pick first." she said. She quickly swung the cats from around her back. The Cloudwalkers gasped. "Oh, Mommy, cats!" said Tommy. "I want the pure white one and the Pebbly dark one." said Dian pointing to Wintertail and Pebblefoot.
"Yay, the ones I wanted!" squealed Tommy."Let's have naming ceremony.We'll take pillows, then stick poles into the sides of the couches and make a blanket attatch from the ends like a curtain." said Dian. "Sure. Come on let's do it." said Tommy.
          The two Cloudwalkers first took Pebblefoot and put the rest of them on the ground. They gently pushed Pebblefoot through the curtain."All their names should do something with their color or personalities. So let's name this one Rocky."said Tommy. Pebblefoot flinched at the name. Next Dusktail was shoved up. "Let's name this one Night." said Tommy. Then Dotfur was shoved up. "Let's name you Dotty Wotty." said Dian. The other cats burst into peals of laughter while Dotfur looked embarassed. "I think the other cats like it." said Dian. Last Wintertail was put up. "Let's name you Snowy."said Dian. Wintertail put her paws over her head. What had she gotten herself into?

Chapter 13

              When Wintertail got back to camp, all the cats clustered around her,except Cheetahswift, Frostglory, and Puckleclaw.After that, Wintertail went to look for Cheetahswift. Wintertail found Cheetahswift in the warriors den, sobbing. "Cheetahswift, are you okay?"asked Wintertail. "Why, Wintertail, why?" sobbed Cheetahswift. "Why what?!!"said Wintertail, getting a little impatient. "Why did Frostglory choose you? Why couldn't it been me?" Cheetahswift spat. "Well, I don't know.But we're still friends right?" Cheetahswift got up and ran out of the den. "No!!"she shouted. Wintertail tried to track her, but her scent went over the QuickClan border.
      Wintertail told Frostglory about what she and the other cats discovered. Frostglory decided that instead of leaving in about a week, they would leave tomorrow at dawn.

Chapter 12

         Wintertail wanted to tell Frostglory about what she overheard. But as soon as she stepped out of the warrior den Puckleclaw stopped her. Wintertail knew wouldn't try and harm her with other cats around, so she knew she was safe. "Your supposed to be going to meet the other cats,"Puckleclaw said with a smirk smile.With a big huff she trotted off. When she finally reached the place where the four cats were suppose to meet, the others were are ready there.
      Pebblefoot was a female broad gray cat. Dusktail was a very dark male cat. Dotfur was just sitting there with a smirk smile. All the cats didn't want to work together but they had to. "So how are we going to befriend the Cloudwalkers?"asked Dusktail. "Let's just try being nice to them looking cute and cuddly." giggled Dotfur. "Okay, you do it." meowed Pebblefoot. Wintertail watched as Pebblefoot pushed Dotfur out in the open by the Cloudwalker. Just before the Cloudwalker turned it's head Pebblefoot ran into a bush. Wintetail watched as Dotfur started to purr and hit the Cloudwalker. Wintertail smiled. They had found their way.

Chapter 11

When Wintertail got back to camp, something was different.  No one had come back with drenched moss.

"All cats, come now!" yowled Frostglory.

When all the cats gathered, Frostglory continued her announcement.

"Cats of WaveClan we are going through a drought.   All the leaders have decided to send one cat from every clan to investigate.  Dusktail from NightClan, Pebblefoot from RockClan, and Dotfur from QuickClan will go.  I have decided to send Wintertail."

Wintertail noticed that the cats that were chosen were the same ones who went to see the Strawberry Tree.

"You four will have to befriend the Cloudwalkers from the  Old Cloudwalker Place who will be traveling up the stream for a trip. You will have one week to befriend the Cloudwalkers. You will meet at dawn ,"  said Frostglory.

On her way to the warriors den, Wintertail heard Puckleclaw talking to another cat. She sniffed the air - it sure wasn't  a WaveClan cat.   Wintertail crept behind a fern to listen.

"Once Wintertail and the others are gone there will be nothing  to stop us from taking over the clans," hissed an unfamiliar voice.

"What about the leaders?" whispered a creaky voice.

"Oh, don't worry, they won't be a problem. I got special plans for them." said Puckleclaw with a smirk.

Backing up Wintertail, stepped on a twig and it cracked loudly under her foot.

"What was that?"

"I don't know."

Puckleclaw swung his head around and spotted Wintertail. "Oh, no!" he gasped.

Wintertail ran as fast as she could into the warriors hole, where she was safe.

Chapter 10

           The next morning Cheetahswift and Wintertail went on a morning patrol. During the patrol, they saw a QuickClan warrior on their side of the border. Wintertail strayed from the patrol to attack the cat. She pounced on the invader and they tumbled down a slope until they hit a tree. Wintertail quickly pinned the intruder to the tree but then she noticed that it was Doteye.

"Doteye?" meowed Wintertail, letting her tight grip loosen while her anger burned. 

"I think you mean Dotfur, and how are you doing Wintereye?" smirked Dotfur.

"Well if you must know, I became a warrior last night. So call me Wintertail." meowed Wintertail.

"Wintertail." called a voice. "Better go now."

Note:  When Doteye became a warrior, her named changed to Dotfur. 

Chapter 9

       When they got back to back to camp Wintereye placed the fruit and milk gifts she got for Frostglory by her den. When she woke up the next morning she heard Frostglory yowl. She stepped out and saw Frostglory looking at her with wide happy eyes.

"We have two apprentices that are ready to become warriors." she yowled."Cheetaheye and Wintereye. Cheetaheye step forward."

Cheetaheye did as she was told.

"From all that is right and  under the sparkling moon of the night (warrior ceremonies are usually held at night) you shall be known as Cheetahswift."

"Wintereye step forward."

Wintereye stepped up nervously.

"From all that is right and under the sparkling moon of the night you shall be known as Wintertail"

"Wintertail, Cheetahswift,Wintertail,Cheetahswift" cheered all the other cats.

"The hero shall leave the clans and the hero's enemy will strip the land to it's core."whispered a voice on seeming to come from nowhere.
Note:  As warriors, Wintereye is now known as Wintertail and Cheetaheye is now known as Cheetahswift.

Chapter 8

   Wintereye broke off many branches from a tree. She made a hut like thing over the nursery. Then she dug a smaller hole around the entrance of the nursery. Wintereye and Cheetaheye spent the rest of the morning gathering water in moss and putting it in the small hole that surrounded the nursery. By doing this, no one would be able to steal the kits, hurt the pregnant cats, and the kittens would not be able to crawl out, get lost or hurt.
        In the afternoon, they went to get something to eat and drink. As you know cats like meat, but WaveClan only eat fruits and drink coconut milk. Wintereye and Cheetaheye snuck into the Cloudwalker garden and took two plastic bags, three tin cans and grabbed two wooden pegs. They hopped onto the wooden pegs and slid down the hill to the fruits and coconut trees. Wintereye climbed into the fruit tree and bit the stem of a ripe mango. It fell down into the plastic bag.They continued to collect the mangoes until they had 7 mangoes in the bag.  When they were done, they went to the coconut trees.
       At the coconut trees, Cheetaheye climbed into the coconut tree and cut down 3 coconuts. Wintereye caught all of them in the bag. Wintereye took a pointy rock and made a hole in the coconut and the milk came spurting out. She let it drip into the tin cans. The cats eagerly ate their fill of the tasty fruits and milk.

"This taste delicious" mumbled Cheetaheye through a mouthful of food.
"Let's go back to camp now." said Wintereye."Save the last of the coconut milk and the last fruit for Frostglory."
Coconut milk already in a can!

Chapter 7

   During Puckleclaw's announcement Wintereye learned that after everyone had left Strawberry Tree, Pineglory set off to explore Moon Tree. Moon Tree had pure white fruit things. Pineglory, attracted to the purity of the color and encouraged by the rumble of his stomach, ate one.  On the way back to his territory, Pineglory was attacked by a vicious band of rats and bitten by a rat named Red chopper. Iimmediately Pineglory got a serious infection.  He was barely able to make it back to his camp.  Safetyherb (Medicine cat) was able to watch over him as he healed but one night something weird happened!  Pineglory stopped breathing and out of his body came a ghost - the ghost of Willowtail.
   Willowtail's ghost said, "Each clan leader shall gain 7 lives from eating a Moon fruit. Pineglory now has 7 lives remaining."
  Wintereye no longer needed to travel to Moon Tree and stayed back to make the camp better.
Eat white chocolate and gain 7 think?

Chapter 6

   When they finally got closer to the top they started to see the other cats.
   "Wait...before we go I have to tell you something. Let's keep this a secret between me and you."whispered Frostglory. By the sound of her voice and the twitch of her whiskers, Wintereye knew she was not kidding. When they got to the others, the sun was starting to set.
   "We should start heading back to our clans now.We will check out moontree tomorrow." hissed Pineglory.
   The clan cats started to go their separate ways.  They finally reached the place where the clan was starting to make a camp and a hunting patrol was also coming back. The camp looked different .Instead of a smooth flat area there were tons of holes. The biggest hole looked like the warriors den, a medium sized hole looked like the apprentice hole,  another medium sized hole looked like the medicine cat's hole.   There was the nursery which was quite large.  There was the huge elders hole and lastly, the leaders den which sat proudly on top of a large rock formation.
     Wintereye slipped inside the apprentice den and took a trip off to dream land.
     Wintereye woke to the sound of Puckleclaw's voice. What had happened to Frostglory? Had she left without her?
Dream Mousse or dream mouse?

Chapter 5

   Wintereye did not need an answer.  She gasped.  The room was filled with sparkling moss. It was Frostglory  who broke the silence with a hushed whisper. "I wonder what is in the next room?"  Before Wintereye could answer, Frostglory was already trotting ahead. Wintereye quickly followed.
   The room looked plain. It was a rocky room with a small puddle near the side. The pool was created by a tiny leak in the roof. Wintereye was so busy staring at cave she did not notice when Frostglory dragged in two clumps of moss and placed it on the floor. At the end af the cave was a rock wall. In the rock wall were claw marks big enough for their claws to fit in.
    Let's climb the wall."Frostglory meowed.  They started to climb the wall step by step, paw by paw.
  The first priority was to get out; the second, to find everyone
Oh! No!  A Utahraptor?!
